Joined 8 years ago from Sandy, Utah
I grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois. My folks had a forty acre farm there. After I graduated from High School, I then entered the Marine Corp in 1972. Where I traveled around for about six years to including Hawaii as my last duty station. Eventually though, I ended up in Salt Lake City in 1981 where I attended the University of Utah and received a BA degree in Criminal Justice.
I also received an added blessing while there. For I met my wife and was blessed with three lovely children, two girls and a boy. Add to that the fact that I am now a retired police officer as well living in Sandy Utah. And you have a clear picture of a man who has, had it all. Excitement, fun and adventure.
Yet, since leaving law enforcement in 1995, I have pursued other career opportunities in the Banking Industry in order to keep busy. Not to mention, I became a proud grandfather for the first time this last year. Proving that life can be as exciting as you want to make it.
All through my whole life though, I've always had what you would call an irresistable desire to write whether it be an article, a short story or a novel. So, I've decided to explore this avenue and see where it leads me. Realizing that all this time, I've been jotting down one kind of story or another when I did police reports, gathered evidence and communicated with other people.
The key to this new adventure will be to have fun doing it. While realizing that writing is not for momentary gain as much as it is to say something important that others want to hear or read. For i've learned over the years that by becoming a servant to your fellow human beings do we receive our true reward.
